Submission Deadline January 19th            

'Connecting the Dots'

The Conference

Market Research Summit is designed for practitioners in market research, consumer insight and business strategy who play a vital role in enabling brands to understand their customers. The conference provides a platform for innovative, disruptive and passionate leaders in the marketing insight industry pioneering new ways of deriving actionable insight.

We are putting out call for proposals, keynotes, case-studies and topics for panel discussions and debates that will form the agenda for 2018 Summit. We welcome anyone who has a compelling story to tell, creative and collaborative project to showcase or present game-changing future technologies.

Conference Theme

The over-arching theme for 2018 is once again 'Connecting the Dots'. As practitioners we are constantly required to piece the puzzle together or connect the dots that make sense of the bigger picture. We’d be delighted to hear from innovators, disruptors and leading organisations that have used joined-up insight to solve customer problems, design new products/services and identify emerging trends.

We are interested in receiving exciting case studies on real-time research, social media, qualitative & quantitative methodologies, big data, next-generation technology, artificial intelligence, behavioural economics, gamification, crowd sourcing, neuroscience, knowledge management, data integration, storytelling, dissemination of findings and data protection/compliance.
